Lasagna Mozzarella Ratatouille

Lasagna Mozzarella Ratatouille

"A failure is a man who has blundered but is not capable of cashing in on the experience."

"My reputation grows with every failure."

I still remember twenty five years ago, when the spelling bee master pronounced the word "mozzarella", It was the end of my dream to finish first place that year. I went down the stage, head bow avoiding all the looks of everybody because my tears were starting to flow. I literally cried a river that day losing to my greatest adversary, the first honor student of our class. It is always so hard to fail, specially when you think you've given your best. And for my child's heart, winning that spelling contest meant everything to me. I cried and I thought it was the end of everything. But of course, I realised eventually as I grow old that life is truly full of failures. Year after year I've known failures of all form. And year after I cry but I am still here. That is what counts.

Eventually I came to realise that mozzarella is a cheese and that it taste good. Eventually I realised that I am really poor in spelling. :-) Ratatouille used to be my password, but I always misspell it so I decided to change it. Anyways, when mozzarella and ratatouille are on my plate all forms of spelling are allowed.

I am sending this lasagna recipe to Hillary the lovely host of this week's Presto Pasta Night, a delicious pasta event created by Ruth.





Lasagna Mozzarella Ratataouille

1 pack of dry lasagna noodles

about half a casserole of your left over Ratataouille

3/4 pound mozzarella cheese

1 can of tomato sauce
salt and pepper

Bing a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook your lasagna noodles. Put your tomato sauce on your ratatouille to add liquid on it. Preheat your oven at 190° celsius. Assemble your lasagna by spreading a layer of ratatouille, a layer of noodles and mozzarella cheese. You can sprinkle the top with parmesan cheese if you want. Bake for 25 minutes covered with foil and another ten minutes without cover.

Spicy Fettuccine Prawn Curry
Beets, Basil, Riccotta Candy Ravioli in Orange sauce

I sometimes have to think hard when I'm spelling it-- often I forget it's just a single "r" :) The lasagna's beautiful-- I just have to get my hands on some leftover ratatouille, haha! :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog. It's nice to "meet" you and I loved your post on failures (which, are simply part of the journey). Lovely writing and the recipe looks amazing. I will try it with my gluten-free brown rice pasta.
In good health,

Ya know, between mozzarella and lasagna, a lot of Italian food words are tough to spell... go figure.

That doesn't stop them from looking like cheesey goodness though. Excellent work... and now I want lasagna.

And thanks for the comment. I always like meeting new people :)

isn't it great that not only can you spell mozzarella and ratataouille now, you can eat them too? Best of all, you can eat them together in this dish. Hope you eat this dish with revenge, as it sure looks good! :o)
